Monster Encounters is an American reality TV show that airs on Travel Channel. The series centres around the presenter as well as a wildlife expert named Casey Anderson, who embarks on various missions to find creatures that lurk in some of the isolated parts of the earth.
Travel Channel has never shied away from producing shows that are part-adventure and part-reality shows. Monster Encounter is even one step ahead of that. It’s not just adventurous what Anderson does; it is downright dangerous. Of course, audiences get a kick out of watching their host so up and close with dangerous animals and that’s the reason why this show has fared quite well.
Monster Encounters Cast: Who is in it?
As mentioned earlier, wildlife enthusiast Casey Anderson is the host of the show. Anderson has been working as a wildlife expert since few decades and has gained a good knowledge of wildlife. It is his life’s goal to follow the right pattern and encounter with the wild animals. In the show, he joins forces with local trackers as he investigates and comes face-to-face with elusive creatures.
Sharing his excitement about the show, Anderson said “I travelled to some of the earth’s most inaccessible regions. My daily commute to work put me on the back of elephants, in acrobatic helicopters, or on a ride in a speed boat along rivers in the middle of nowhere.” He further added, ‘I found myself in places with names like ‘Devil’s Cave,’ ‘The Elephant Graveyard’ and ‘The Death Road.’ I was attacked repeatedly by a massive crocodile in the Zambezi River, wrestled a giant anaconda in the Amazon and was bitten and feasted upon by a vampire bat in Mexico – and this is just the first season!”
Monster Encounters Plot: What is it about?
In the first episode of the first season, Casey Anderson travels to cattle ranches and caves in Mexico to find out the vampire bats which are attacking humans. He puts his life at great risk by becoming a prey to these bloodsucking vampire bats in Megacolony.
In the second episode, Anderson travels to Nepal by traveling via foot, raft as well as elephant. Few days before, he had received a complaint from a national park that a tiger was seen attacking locals. Casey arrives at the tiger zone to find the man-eater.
